Post blepharoplasty steroids discuss with your surgeon
We often give steroids in a much much smaller dose via I.V. during surgery. After surgery low doses may be prescribed tapering off in five days to help reduce swelling and inflammation so this should not be a problem. However it is always best to discuss this with your surgeon before starting the prescribed medication. You may want to have your surgeon contact your ENT for further discussion if any differences arise. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
For post-op meds ask your surgeon.
Please call your surgeon.
Our opinions do not matter. What matters is the opinion of the surgeon taking care of you. Call the office and have the surgeon paged if necessary. No one is so busy that they don't have time to answer the questions of their surgery patient.
